ELECTRICAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 11 May 1914

ELECTRICAL ASSOCIATION. In the course of a recent address before the N.S.W. Electrical Association, Mr. H. R. Halloran said that they were in an unfortunate position in Australia, as they were dependent entirely for standard calibration on the London or Charlotten burg standard laboratories. This meant that they had to invest in the best primary sub-standards available. No indicating instrument could be relied upon as accurate after a trip from Great Britain, although the variation between the English calibrations and those which were locally taken were generally less than the personal errors of readings.

MASCOT'S OVERSEER. With reference to an advertisement from Mascot Coun cil, appearing elsewhere in this issue, we are informed that the Council discussed whether a working foreman or an ' overseer of works and building inspector should be appointed. The Council very sensibly decided to call applications for the latter! 'MADE IN AUSTRALIA.' This is All-Australian Manufactures Week. The inspiration of the movement is Self Help and National Self Reliance, qualities; by the way, which, are   not sadly lacking amongst us,- but which are, nevertheless,   in need of practical promotion. As a young race just   entering on our industrial era, we cannot, as a whole, be expected to immediately realise the splendid objective of the movement, but we can, by a preference for the locally made article — the national article to better describe it — materially assist those who are in the van on this side of Australian development.

WALTER BURLEY GRIFFIN. A Special Interview. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 18 May 1914

WALTER BURLEY GRIFFIN. A Special Interview. Walter Burley Griffin came hack last week after a six months' visit to America and Europe, . and immediately took up his duties as Director of Federal Design and Construction. Speaking to our representative, he said that he was impressed on his return to America by the amount of interest being' evinced in the building of Australia's Federal city. 'Perhaps it was because the world's competition Avas won by an American,' he added. 'Anyhow there was a general desire to know more of the pro posed capital city for 'the new nation in the Pacific.' i4l gave several addresses and am sure the result was at least advantageous to Australia from the standpoint of advertisement. 'My first call on the way home was to the ren dezvous of the Panama Inhibition. There I was shown the remarkable electrical effects that are to be utilised in the lighting' of the buildings, instead of the main features of the architecture being picked out with dotted lights as...

TOWN PLANNING. The. work of the Town Planning Association has, -up to ? the 'present, largely centred in making its 'objects public and laying the foundation of legisla tive reform to allow of the more practical work being undertaken. It has been imminently success ful in this respect, having had its programme en 'dorsed by the- Government. The Association has now vigorously entered into the. task of establishing the movement in the '-more important country centres. The Mayors and principal citizens of those centres have been circularised asking their assistance, and the replies to the present have been very satisfactory. The first country branch has been formed on the Blue Mountains, with headquarters at Katoomba, and tlie honor of establishment very appropriately belongs to tlie President (John Sulman. F.R.I.B.A.). Last week he. addressed a large meeting and was impressed with the amount and nature of the sup port forthcoming. He told the people some home truths as a qualified tow...

Local Government Notes. N.S.W. SHIRES CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 18 May 1914

Local Government Notes. N.S.W. SHIRES CONFERENCE. A proposal much favored by Kyogle Shire Coun cil, and the absence of- which, in fact, has resulted in the expenditure of hundreds of pounds which otherwise would have been saved, was carried at the shires conference (says the 'Kyogle Examiner'). It was that any Council's engineer who was a licensed surveyor, or any surveyor the council cared to employ, should have authority to lay out surveys of new roads or road deviations. Other resolutions adoptediof interest to L.G. En gineers were : — That the Government should be compelled not only to make and form roads in new Crown areas, but to submit plans to the Shire Council concerned, which would see that the work was carried out to its satisfaction. That all the money received by the Lands De partment for the sale of unnecessary roads be credited to the shire concerned for the purchase of necessary roads. / That all roads in the State leading to tourist and health resorts and watering p...

The Engineer in Local Government. POWER OF COUNTRY PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 18 May 1914

The Engineer in Local Government. POWER OF COUNTRY PRESS. ''The ? Richmond River Herald'' (N.S.W. ), in a spirited leader of recent date, opposed the sugges tion that Woodburn Shire should share the services of its engineer with a neighboring local governing body in an entirely different district. 'The shire needs an engineer, not half an engineer,' it continued, and while it has an officer like Mr. Fen ton, it should do its best to retain him. Otherwise u iinyiii \ti_y uiiMiy. uiiy «i mhijiim.1 jjauivCL mku il secured once before.' As it happened the other shire — Ilanvood — liad the good sense to get an engineer of its own — and a good one too— City Engineer T. L. Thompson,, of Toowoomba (Q.). But how line it would be if all papers in the country wrote as the 'I-I'erald''! 'THE GOOD ROAD.' Mr. J. Haydon Cardew, in the course of his paper read at the National Roads Congress, described a road in course of construction at Summer Mill, Syd ney. City Iingineer .Louttit, of South Brisba...
